A Philosophical Essay on Probabilities
by Pierre Simon Laplace
Publisher: Chapman & Hall 1902
Number of pages: 234
This classic introduces the concepts and uses of probability theory. It demonstrates, without the use of higher mathematics, the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas. It also shows how scientists can express complex ideas in simple terms.
